As part of Syfy 25 – where we’re looking back at everything amazing that’s happened in the world of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror over the last 25 years – we asked a bunch of famous people what sort of geeky stuff they like. Here’s what The Expanse's Dominique Tipper had to say.

A movie that desperately needs a remake is:
Let's make originals.
